The Good Excellent interface. Numerous connectivity options. Good battery life. Sharp and vibrant display.

The Bad Slow processor. Lacks FM radio. Expensive. Lacks 3.5mm audio jack.

The Bottom Line The Dopod D810 is packed with a bevy of useful features including 3.5G HSDPA support, quadband GSM, and Wi-Fi, but suffers from some glaring shortcomings such as slow processing speeds and barely passable camera.

8.2 Overall

Review Sections

The Dopod D810 is one of the most well equipped smartphones on the market, sporting the latest 3.5G High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) protocol for blistering data transfer. The entry price into this high-speed world may seem a little steep, but you'll usually be able to get it cheaper when tied with a contract.

Design
The D810 smartphone is touted as the world's first 3.5G HSDPA-capable Windows Mobile PDA-phone and comes finished in either polished black or white. Its glossy and sleek design makes it one of the more stylish handsets on the market, complemented by its minimalist good looks and large vibrant display. Forgoing an integrated QWERTY keyboard, the D810 instead uses a 2.8-inch LCD touchscreen display that quickly becomes a haven for fingerprints.

Getting around isn't a problem thanks to a three-way scroll wheel for traversing menus, as well as multiple control buttons, including a voice command activation button, five-way navigation key and a stylus. To the right are a miniSD card slot for extra storage and buttons for selecting the camera and turning on the power.

The device measures in at 108 by 58.2 by 18.4 millimetres and weighs only 150 grams with the battery. For a smartphone, the D810 isn't too bulky or obtrusive and will fit comfortably in most pockets. Accessories include a travelling pouch, stereo headset, AC adaptor and USB cable.
